Reports suggest that Aaron Ramsey is set for a medical this weekend ahead of his summer transfer to Juventus (via The Guardian).
This has been the likeliest outcome for several weeks but it now looks almost certain that Aaron Ramsey will be heading for Juventus in the summer.
The midfielder’s contract at the Emirates is set to expire in June for the past couple of weeks he has been able to speak with foreign clubs.
Earlier this season, the Gunners announced that the club would not be offering the Welshman a new deal so an exit has always looked likely.
Reports in both Italy and the UK have suggested that Ramsey’s exit will see him swap North London for Italy and the Serie A.

The Guardian have claimed that Ramsey will earn upwards of £140,000 per week, making him the club’s second-highest paid player behind Cristiano Ronaldo.
Other reports suggest that Ramsey will head to Italy on Sunday to complete his medical ahead of the move.
It’s a great transfer for Aaron Ramsey. As interesting as it will be to see the Welshman in action for the Serie A side, many Arsenal fans will feel his absence. The 28-year-old hasn’t always covered himself in glory during his 11 years at the Emirates but the most disappointing thing about losing the player will be the fact it is a free transfer.
